Museum of the

American Revolution


The Museum of the American Revolution takes visitors on a journey through the dramatic, surprising story of our nation’s founding. Through exhibition galleries, theaters and a distinguished collection of original artifacts, the powerful history of the American Revolution is brought to life. The 118,000 sq ft state-of-the-art building opened its doors in Historic Philadelphia in 2017. With gracious architecture, amazing terrace views and immersive exhibit spaces, the Museum also offers a one-of-a-kind backdrop for special events.










Cheers! We look forward to working with you.
